Columbia Sailing competed that the Henry Luce regatta held at SUNY Maritime’s venue on the East River, a quick ride from our venue of City Island. Adam DeVita, Elizabeth Keeney, Calvin Tong, Bailey Fryer, and Nicholas Houchois competed in the weekend’s qualifying event. Given a combination of the strong currents, shifty breeze, and competitive teams, conditions throughout the weekend were certainly difficult. However, Columbia getting accustomed to the difficult conditions throughout the weekend put up a good fight, and placed 9th out of 18 boats, just short of qualifying for the upcoming War Regatta. Thank you Coach Conor Cashel for the great advice and encouragement throughout the weekend!
